Several raspberry recipes here, but glad I choose this one. Rich, creamy, and just a little bit tart from the raspberries without being to sweet. This is the recipe to use, I followed it exactly and turned out perfect, though next time might have to do two batches as this was a little to much for my particular machine. I would not change a thing and will be trying it with different berries like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries - hey maybe MIXED berries, it's that good
